Check Yes or No
George Strait
Straight from the Box

Capo third Fret!
   Check Yes or No
Intro (DD--AA--GG, DD,--AA--GG) 

D       A        G
It started way back in eight grade
D         A          G 
I used to sit beside Emmie Lou Hayes
D             A                     G           
A pink dress, matching shoes, and a pony tail
G                                   A 
She kissed me on the school bus and told me not to tell.

(same progression)

Next day I chased her around the playground
Across the monkey bars to the merry go round
and Emmie Lou got caught passing a note
Before the teacher took it I read what she wrote: (chorus)
        D                Bm            G
Do you love me?, Do you want to be my friend?
and if you do.
      D                  Bm              G
Then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
if you want to.
     G               A          (no Chords)
I think this is how love goes...check yes or no.

Then play intro 

Now we're grown up and she's my wife
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes
Ain't much changed I still chase Emmie Lou
Up and down the hall,and the bed in our room.

Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years togethor and she still gets to me
can't believe it's been that long ago
when we got started with just a little note.

chorus X 2

note on the extro you will use the D-A-G progression, but  pick the high E 
(that's the 1st string open, no insult meant) after each D and A chord in the 
progression. This adds the nice ring that George adds in the video and that 
neat Wrangler jeans commercial)

okay lemme get this straight. how can you pick the high e (open) if its a capo three? i mean obviously you cant unless you meant pick the high e which would now be an open G. im just trying to figure that out, its confusing.

First line lyrics?
"It started waay back in THIRD (not Eight) grade"
IMHO sortof makes me wonder IF anyone would've wore ponytails in 8th grade? VBG
